About the Blog

Welcome to DogFur and Dandelions! Yes, the name is just as random as it sounds. But it serves a purpose: it catches your attention, and makes you think about often-overlooked aspects of everyday life. And that’s exactly what I hope to do with the content I share with you here! Nothing in this life — not even dog fur or dandelions — is truly random or outside the scope of God’s sovereignty; and therefore everything must be approached according to the standard of His unchanging truth. Big or small, life-changing or mundane, external influences or internal perspectives, spiritual disciplines or silly entertainments: everything must be measured against His divine banner of truth.

To that end, my goal is to encourage you toward thinking biblically in every area of life — big or small, life-changing or mundane, external or internal, sacred or secular. I seek to accomplish this by sharing:

  • spiritual meditations which speak biblically about some specific aspect of everyday life;
  • book reviews and other recommended resources to help increase your knowledge of truth;
  • snapshots of everyday life, including my journey with illness, church-planting, and marriage;
  • artistic portrayals of spiritual truth through the mediums of ink or watercolor; and
  • encouraging testimonies of God’s goodness, faithfulness, mercy, and love.

This site is more than just a random home of words and art: everything I share is for the purpose of encouraging a closer walk with God, a more intimate knowledge of Him, and a more passionate relationship with Him. I want to exhort you with sound doctrine; edify you with the glorious truth of who God is and what He has done for us; and encourage you to “rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” (Romans 12:12).
